    Cameras, lenses and equipment. These are tools to help you make photographs. Photography is not f-stops shutter speeds and ISO or other technical matters.

As a photographer you should begin to see everything as a light source. To be  more specific you should learn to observe light sources that illuminate, or transmit light, and light […] The post Light appeared first on Sam D'Amico Photograp...

  • It’s In The Way That You Use It

    You and I use things to write with. Pens, pencils computers, etc. Writers who write novels, poetry, etc. use these things to write with too.

  • Arts And Crafts

    Art is vague because art is subjective and is in the eye of the beholder. I think to identify oneself as an artist is equally vague. Art involves subjective judgement. Craft is distinct and identifiable. You can, with clarity and certainty, identify yourself as a craftsperson. Craft involves skillful application of technique. If you are skillful in your craft you are more likely to produce work th...

  • The Importance Of Exposure

    I don’t think the importance of exposure could be overstated as an element of photographic composition If you put all of your effort into framing and all of the other elements of composition and you miss the mark on your exposure, all of your other efforts are diminished because your picture is too bright or too dark.
